My experience at South has been great so far. I was skeptical at first, but my professors have been good, the curriculum is solid, and there are so many resources available to help you succeed. I do wish the financial aid department had better communication skills. The cost is outrageous...BUT I am happy here for now.

South University is a really amazing school and everyone is so friendly there. My professors always try to help out when they can, which I really appreciate. I graduated high school early so it has it's ups and downs. I'm glad I get to finish school early but I missed all of the end of the year senior fun. In the end I'll learn get to be a physician so it's ok.
Excellent school with faculty that strives for student success. The overall atmosphere is conducive to learning. There are programs that will suit the needs of all students who enter the doors.
